‘Zines A zine is a publication that meets two of the following three criteria:
- it is written in some hitherto written language
- it is intended to be read by more than one person
- one might conceivably label it issue # something-or-other, if one were so inclined
I’ve got to admit that i’m a bit conservative and picky when it comes to what i distribute. I concentrate on political publications, ones with something to say about this world in which we live.
My selection of zines is always changing, based on what i still have in stock and what still seems relevant. While i try and keep this page up to date, it is always best to check in with me via email before ordering (at email@example.com, of course).
